📋 Team News: Chelsea
Marc Cucurella (Muscle Injury), Mateo Kovacic (Knock), Benoît Badiashile (Hamstring Injury), Ben Chilwell (Hamstring Injury), N'Golo Kanté (Groin Injury), Reece James (Hamstring Injury), Mason Mount (Pelvis Injury) and Armando Broja (Cruciate Ligament Rupture) aren’t available for Chelsea boss Frank Lampard.
In all likelihood, The Blues may well make use of the 4-3-3 system this time featuring Kepa Arrizabalaga, Cesar Azpilicueta, Thiago Silva, Trevoh Chalobah, Lewis Hall, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Enzo Fernandez, Conor Gallagher, Noni Madueke, Kai Havertz and Raheem Sterling.
📰 Team News: Newcastle United
Newcastle United manager Eddie Howe has to choose a team with limited availability. Joe Willock (Hamstring Injury), Nick Pope (Hand Injury), Matty Longstaff (Knee Injury), Joelinton (Knock), Emil Krafth (Cruciate Ligament Rupture), Javier Manquillo (Knock), Jamaal Lascelles (Calf Injury) and Matt Ritchie (Knee Injury) will miss out on this game.
We reckon that The Magpies might utilise a 4-3-3 system, starting the game with Martin Dubravka, Kieran Trippier, Fabian Schaer, Sven Botman, Matt Targett, Elliot Anderson, Bruno Guimaraes, Anthony Gordon, Miguel Almiron, Alexander Isak and Allan Saint-Maximin.
We’re of the view that Newcastle United and Chelsea could find scoring goals difficult here.
There should be little in it, and a draw looks quite a realistic result. We’re therefore seeing a very even match with a 0-0 score by the conclusion of this game.
